A professional development seminar led by Professor David Stark

Presenting one’s research is an important part of professional development. How should one prepare for such challenges? What are good strategies for organizing one’s material? How to avoid common mistakes using PowerPoint, and how can one use such visual aids to improve one’s presentation? How to address the challenge of presenting rich research findings within a 20-minute constraint? What are good strategies for answering questions?

These and other questions will be addressed in this professional development seminar, led by David Stark (Columbia University and the University of Warwick). The seminar is targeted to younger faculty and is also open to PhD students. Participants in the seminar will have access to examples of successful presentations.
